Pumpkin Protein Bars Recipe

A couple of weeks ago, my friend Angie came over for a girls night and she made the most delicious Pumpkin Protein Bars so of course I needed the recipe. I tweaked it a bit based on what I had at home but it tastes just as delicious and I hope you enjoy it

Pumpkin Protein Bars
  • 1 15 oz Can of Libby’s Pumpkin
  • 1/4 Cup Egg Whites

  • ½ TSP Baking Soda
